LaGrange police are searching for suspects who broke into the Lynx Coin Laundry Shoppe at 408 Daniel St. about 1 a.m. Thursday.

According to police, when officers arrived they found the back rear door damaged from either being pried open or kicked in.

Officers also discovered a small window in the bathroom was broken through and an office door had been kicked off the hinges.

The report states other damage included soap and bleach dispensers ripped off the wall, the faces on three dryers removed, fluorescent lights on the front of the business broken out and the front glass door was shattered.

The estimated cost of the damage was $480.

According to the key holder of the business, it looked like the only thing the burglars took was a change box that held $5 worth of quarters.

All information in this report is gathered from official law enforcement and public safety reports and releases. It is the policy of the Daily News to list the names of people charged with felonies.
